Post-apocalyptic scenarios are all over TV, film, and the written word these days. If I confess it to you all, I am actually working on a zombie novel myself. So what better way to enjoy a healthy dose of your post-apocalyptic world than in a series of short stories? Maureen McHugh decided to dapple in the genre by telling us several tales of the human race facing struggles in a futuristic world, some of them weirder than we could ever imagine. I stumbled across this book from a “Best Science Fiction of the Last Decade” list.
